What gets me is that the only things I've done with it between Patch Tuesdays has been updating programs, nothing else.
My smartphone and Windows 7 laptop handle the vast majority of the work.
I would need to get my external DVD drive to plug into the netbook to try this which is currently at home with my other netbook of the same make/model, needed for an unsullied OS to get my first netbook back running (see some of my other posts about the fun I had with said netbook.) If you can use the CD, I would advise you to.
This may solve your issue, but it can also fail to do it, though. I and most of my XP customers have had Auto Updates shut off for a long time now, since they caused total system failure on many boxes.
There’s been a resurgence of small, low-cost laptops in the past few years.
The term “netbook” may have died around the turn of the decade, but low-cost Chromebooks continue to grow in popularity, and in recent years Acer, Asus, HP, and Lenovo have all introduced small Windows notebooks with price tags in the 0 to 0 range.
The font size can be changed at Applications -- Font. The change can be done already when running the Live CD before the installation in order to be able to see the installation windows correctly.

You may download these drivers from respective manufactures' website for free.The Acer Aspire One (or AAO, or AA1, as it's known by fans), is a type of ultra-portable computer called a "Netbook".Since there is so much community documentation for the Acer Aspire One, the docs have been divided into subpages.Note: The default font size used by Xubuntu is in many cases unsuitable for the small screen.Already during the installation windows can be bigger than the screen and the OK button is invisible.Step Four Unscrew the two screws near the Wi-Fi module, unplug the audio cable, and disconnect the SSD ribbon.The RAM slot is on the underside of the motherboard in the lower left-hand corner. Step Five Reassemble the computer and tap F2 while it’s booting to enter the BIOS. I got a lot of the info for this project from over there. At least I have another netbook of the same vintage that I plan to do the latest updates to so I can get the KB numbers of the updates to do each manually to the bad one unless some kind soul can point me to a fix. Just tried it and I get a request for a Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3 CD to be inserted: a neat trick for a netbook.I did make an XP Home SP 3 to speed up reinstalls when SP3 is needed, maybe that would work.I tried doing several fixes for the error to no avail: no download occurs.A manual try gives a constant search bar with no end.
